Cook Medical



Since 1963, Cook has been a leader in developing health care devices that have improved lives around the world. With sales and marketing offices worldwide, they are at the forefront of medical research and product development in minimally invasive medical device technology for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

There are common themes across every medical specialty: patients want to get better and doctors want simpler, more effective options. That’s why Cook Medical works hard to improve their minimally invasive medical devices and the way they’re delivered to hospitals and doctors around the world. Being a family-owned business allows them to do what’s best for the patient. It provides freedom to work through a problem for as long as it takes to find the simplest solution. They also have companies that work in areas outside of medical device manufacturing.

Their first products were wire guides, needles and catheters. Today, Cook Medical makes 16,000 products that service 13 hospital lines in 135 countries. Cook Medical’s world headquarters in Bloomington, Indiana, is home to 2,478 employees. That’s more than the total population of the nearby town of Spencer in Indiana.

Today, COOK is among the world’s best-known and most respected names in medical devices and supplies. Closely allied with top medical research facilities, teaching hospitals and leading specialists around the world, the Cook Group continues to provide innovative, physician-conceived, custom-crafted medical devices to health care providers who will accept nothing but the best for their patients.
